Quote of the Day - We need to clean up Congress. The people want to know that lobbyists and their special-interest money are no longer running the show in Washington. - Heath Schuler

How Congress Takes A Congressional Junket Without Letting Anyone Know

Members of Congress and their staffers who travel at the expense of private organizations must follow a long list of legal restrictions and requirements.  However, there is a little known exemption that allows the same federal employees to travel with virtually no accountability and very little transparency.  Please join me and my fellow Lawyer2Lawyer co-host and attorney, Bob Ambrogi, as we welome ProPublica.org reporter Justin Elliott and Washington University Law Professor Kathleen Clark to examine the ethics, legalities and secrecy of these Congressional trips abroad.
